Ideas I have seen.


In a hollowed out and decorated book.

In a chest or box

Carried on a ribbon

In a bowl

In a birdsnest

Around the neck of a teddy bear on a ribbon

In a large shell

In the centre of a large artificial flower

Tied around the brides wrist on a ribbon

OK I am not sure why these have all stuck in my mind and I am sorry I don’t have any pictures for you but I am sure you can imagine your own twists on the ideas.

I went through the whole worrying about the ringbearer for a while and in the end went with the best man having them in his pocket method as he is probably going to be the most reliable person at the wedding (bride and groom included) and it seemed the best way to make sure the rings at least made it to the service.

Another idea I’ve seen for the rings is in a glass slipper. 🙂

I love the book idea too!  If we were doing a ring bearer, I would pick out my favorite love story and have my fiance do the same and have the rings carried down on those.

One of our DIY projects (our first!) was the hollowed out book.  I found the idea & tutorial on oncewed “DIY ring pillow book”.  Way easy! 

Our vintage book was gifted to us by a local used book store owner who loved our idea.  The ribbon we used was from a vintage wedding hat we bought at a vintage clothing store.  We glued a picture from our e-session on the inside of the book to cover the title page.   We love it!!!  Ill post a pic later today if you’d like…

I am having ours on mini pumpkins.  they will be slid over the stems.  It is going to be a fall wedding, so that is very appropriate.:)  But you can do so many neat things:)

MsHymanRoth had a post a long time ago about her ring bearer carrying a teddy bear down the aisle!

I love that idea for younger RB. Mine will be 5, so he’s too “cool” to carry a teddy bear… 🙁

love the idea of carrying them on a ribbon around the wrist! i used to tie a string around my finger to remind me to do something so it’s very fitting 😀 … i hope i remember this when it’s my turn

There is actually a website that will make a teddybear out of any material you send them … I thought about doing it out of my mothers wedding dress … but the idea has been scratched …

I saw a picture of a boy carrying a faberge egg in a magazine … it was cool
